In the UK Election the Conservatives have cross-passed the majority mark of 326 seats according to latest reports and is being considered as a historical win for the party as reports suggest that the rival Labour Party has suffered the worst defeat in the last many years. The Labour Party is far behind at 194 seats.
Meanwhile, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has congratulated Boris Johnson for his return with a thumping majority as the Prime Minister of UK on December 12. PM Modi wished him the best and said he looks forward to working towards the closer India-UK ties. His tweet reads, 'Many congratulations to PM @BorisJohnson for his return with a thumping majority. I wish him the best and look forward to working together for closer India-UK ties.'
However, the elections, which were called by Johnson to end the parliamentary deadlock over Britain's divorce from the 27 nation block, have finally proven to have a Brexit-dominated outcome. Johnson even tweeted just hours before the polling started and urged people to 'vote Conservatives and get Brexit done'.
Meanwhile, Donald Trump has also congratulated Boris Johnson on the 'big win' in the UK general election. As the countings closed on December 12, Trump applauded the Conservative majority in the British Parliament and Labour Party's crushing defeat. The US President's tweet came soon after Johnson said it looked like his party had won 'a powerful new mandate to get Brexit done' in the national elections.
Exit polls for the recently concluded elections in the United Kingdom suggested a major landslide victory for Prime Minister Boris Johnson's Conservative Party and surprised many of his critics. According to the national exit poll released soon after voting stations around Britain closed at 10 pm London time. A party needs a minimum of 322 seats to control the 650-seat House of Commons, the lower house of the British Parliament.
